Are there any trouble shooting steps that will tell me what it is? Thats what I meant. Thank you. And what usually causes it?

You need to remove the belt and inspect each item that is driven by the belt.

How much would something like this typically cost?

Dont even know the failure yet. Once you know what has caused this, then we can talk estimate

Cut the belt off and try to turn each and every pulley by hand and the one that you can't turn is the problem.
